My name is Mahmoud Ludin. I am currently enrolled in 4rd year of International Development (INDEV) at the University of Waterloo. It all started out for me the night when I was applying to universities. I was planning to apply for Economics program in different universities when my older brother saw my application (he was studying Economics in University of Waterloo at that time). He did not recommend Economics program, but pointed me to INDEV. He did not want to switch his program to INDEV, since he was in his fourth year, but advised me; if he knew about INDEV when he was applying to universities, then he would have chosen this program. So, based on his suggestion I enrolled in INDEV.
I am really enjoying International Development program and I am excited about my 4th year. In September 2013, I will be going to Vietnam for 8 months voluntary field placement with an organization called Vietnam Cleaner Production Centre. This will be a great opportunity for me to put my theoretical knowledge into practice.
